We had a great first session of the new adult Sci-Fi and Fantasy book club! There is a pretty even divide between Planners and People Who Don't Know What Planning Is (I'm emphatically in the second camp) so as a compromise, we're planning about 3 months in advance. I may have done some breathing exercises to handle the forethought required.
The first meeting of the Central Library's Sci-Fi and Fantasy book club is Tuesday, 6 October from 6:45-8 p.m. We're meeting in the 1st floor book club room which is in the Burhnam Hoyt room (where the new books are) on the NE side of the Library.
Lovers of Science Fiction and Fantasy rejoice! By popular demand (well, polite request, really), the Central Library is starting a sci-fi and fantasy book club for adults.
SO OH MY GOSH WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?!
We're going to meet on either a Monday or Tuesday evening from 6:30 or 7 to 8. Please leave a comment saying what would be the best day and time for you. I'm thinking the first Monday or Tuesday because that's pretty easy to remember.
